Sorry for being pedantic, but for accuracy's sake the upper observation deck of the CN Tower is called the Skypod (or Sky Pod), not Spacedeck.
And that's from long before iPods came around.

I hate to see Toronto lose its crown, but oh well. It had a good innings. It's still massive.

Not sure, but I think I read something about a 1000m tower that gonna be built in Saudi Arabia as part of a big project, I think this is the render

If this gonna happen, all other towers would look very small, I like the competition
but still not sure

on skyscrapers in the 4th ctbuh criteria :
4. Height to Tip
Height is measured from sidewalk level of the main entrance to the highest point of the building, irrespective of material or function of highest element (thus including antennae, flagpoles and signage).

Why not on TV towers ?
another question, Is the 610.6 m TST height include beacons and rods ?

Please be respectful to us "grieving" Canadians....

The CN Tower upper observation point has never been
called the "spacedeck", it's called the "Skypod".
Could you please correct your diagram.

First the Burj Dubai, then the Guangzhou TV Tower, and
soon the Tokyo Skytree.
Just like the Empire State Building, the CN Tower will soon
be out of the "top 10".......
